China Urges Both US and North Korea to Stop Building Up Tensions on Korean Peninsula

Last month for the first time, North Korea successfully tested intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching the continental United States, and analysts have said it may be able to miniaturize warheads that could fit on such missiles.

CIA Director Mike Pompeo said on Sunday he would not be surprised if North Korea tested another missile, given that it had two tests in July.

But Mr Pompeo denied that a threat of a nuclear conflict was imminent, saying: "I've heard folks talking about being on the cusp of a nuclear war".

The top USA intelligence official said on Sunday he would not be surprised if North Korea tested another missile, given that it had two tests in July, amid rising tensions between the two nations.

"This administration has made our policy very clear".

North Korea warned foreign diplomats to leave Pyongyang in 2013 when it suspended work at a joint inter-Korean industrial park and threatened missile strikes on U.S. Pacific bases, notably in Guam and Hawaii.

New U.N. sanctions targeting North Korea's key exports will help curtail funding for its nuclear and missile programs but may not bring an end to leader Kim Jong Un's nuclear ambitions and could hit ordinary peoples' lives hard, a high-profile defector from the country has told Kyodo News.

"He responds to adverse circumstances", he said.

He added: "The reaction in North Korea that we are intending to get is an understanding that America is no longer going to have the strategic patience that it's had that has permitted him to continue to develop his weapons programme".

In a separate interview on ABC News, Trump's national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, struck a similar tone.

McMaster said President Trump's references to the US military being "locked and loaded" is an effort to maintain peace, not provoke war. "But we're taking all possible actions short of military action to resolve this very grave threat to the United States and the world", the lieutenant general said, citing diplomatic efforts, increased sanctions and increased pressure.

"The United States military is always locked and loaded, but the goal of capable, ready forces is to preserve peace and prevent war", he said. "But the objective of capable, ready forces is to preserve peace and prevent war. We call on the relevant parties to be cautious with their words and actions, and contribute more toward easing tensions and enhancing mutual trust", Geng said in a statement. "The most effective way of preserving peace is to be prepared for war".
